The unseen Whistler didn't kill anyone (that we know of), but he certainly loved watching murders take place, narrating them for us, and chuckling at the suffering... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 9 reviews ) Topics: OTRR, Old Time Radio Researchers Group, Old Time Radio, OTRR Set, OTRR Certified Set, The Whistler,...
